Welcome back to #TerpeneTuesday!
By request, today we’re exploring Fenchol!
Found in basil and used extensively in perfumery, Fenchol is most commonly known for its antibacterial properties.
Smelling sweet, woodsy, and herbal, some of Fenchol’s many uses are as an antioxidant, antimicrobial, and antifungal.
Believe it or not, Fenchol is closely related to Borneol, and the two share many properties. Like Borneol, Fenchol is an antimicrobial and antifungal agent, with the ability to act as an anti-inflammatory.
Curious what strains are high in Fenchol? It’s actually pretty easy – just look for strains with OG or Kush in the name!
